The company has started a year long transition to a brand new office and laboratory facility next to the National Space Centre on Leicester’s Pioneer science park. The new facility will be part of a development called DOCK 2 due to be completed at the end of 2016.
During the 2016 transition period the head office, design and lab functions will move from our Meridian Business Park industrial unit to DOCK (photo) which overlooks the site of the new building. This temporary accommodation move will enable oversight of the build, improved facilities and improved links to the city’s Science and Space communities.
The Meridian industrial unit will be maintained until the lease expiration for large workshop & test facilities.
For the DOCK 2 new build, Leicester-based rg+p Ltd have been contracted as project managers and quantity surveyors, with international firm Idom appointed as lead consultant and architect by Leicester City Council. With headquarters in Spain, Idom was also executive architect for the stunning Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. Javier Quintana, architectural director of Idom, said: “Dock 2 is a very exciting project for us to be involved in. We look forward to creating a building of which Leicester will be proud.”
The Leicester Pioneer science park is part of a range of redevelopment activities based around the National Space Centre including plans for the University of Leicester to develop a National Space Park.
